HealTAC 2019 - Park Plaza Hotel Cardiff 24 - 25 April 2019
Healthcare narratives recorded in documents such as encounter notes, discharge letters, nurse handover notes, imaging/pathology reports, patient-generated data posts in surveys and social media, etc. represent a key communication stream that contains the majority of actionable and contextualised information. Despite this being increasingly available in a digital form, the data is yet to be routinely analysed on a large scale. The conference will bring together academic, healthcare, industrial and patient communities to explore state of the art data analysis methods and share best practice, key results and common challenges.
The program will include keynote talks from (Prof. Hongfang Liu, Mayo Clinic and Prof. Stephane Meystre, Medical University of South Carolina), research papers, discussion panels, an industry forum, software demos, a PhD forum and poster sessions.
Please also see logistic pages which provide details about accommodation and travel.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Cardiff in April!
